The levels of the endocannabinoids anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) are under the negative control of leptin in the rodent hypothalamus. As leptin and endocannabinoids play opposite roles in the control of reproduction, we have investigated whether the impaired fertility typical of...
Endometriosis displays features similar to malignancy, ranging from neovascularization to local invasion and aggressive spread to distant organs. The altered vascular-related genes might be related to the development of endometriosis. This study investigates whether angiotensin I-converting...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is primarily characterized by renal cysts and progression to renal failure. It is a genetically heterogeneous disease, with mutations in the PKD1 gene accounting for the majority of cases. Direct mutation detection for PKD1 -linked ADPKD or...
Association between pre-eclampsia (PEE1) and the dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) 1 and 2 genes, which play a role in the regulation of nitric oxide synthesis and release, was studied. In a case–control study design single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) were determined at eight...
Endometriosis, one of the most common gynaecologic disorders, shows significantly elevated prevalence in industrial areas and there is also a possible genetic predisposition. Glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) are enzymes involved in the metabolism of many disease-causing carcinogens and mutagens...
In order to evaluate the involvement of cell proliferation and apoptosis in the pathogenesis of endometriosis, we investigated the effects of interferon-γ (IFN-γ) on cell growth inhibition and apoptosis of cultured ovarian endometriotic cyst stromal cells (ECSC), eutopic endometrial stromal...
The local immune privilege of the fetus is created by the placenta. Fas ligand (FasL) expression in trophoblast has been implied as one of the mechanisms of fetal tolerance. However, the expression of membranal FasL by trophoblast has failed to explain this role of FasL. Two objections can be...
Fertilization at increased times after ovulation is associated with poor reproductive outcomes. This study examines the effects of post-ovulatory ageing on egg membrane function through analyses of mouse eggs collected at 13 and 22 h post-HCG (‘young’ and ‘aged’ eggs, respectively)....
The acrosome is a membrane-limited granule that overlies the nucleus of the mature spermatozoon. In response to physiological or pharmacological stimuli it undergoes a special type of Ca 2+ -dependent exocytosis termed the acrosome reaction (AR), which is an absolute prerequisite for...
A novel profilin, named profilin IV, was cloned and characterized as a testicular isoform, distinct from the previously described testis-specific profilin III. Profilin IV showed only 30% amino acid identity with the other mammalian profilins; nevertheless, database searches produced significant...
